Domaine de Romefort is located at a distance of 20 kilometers from the university town of Limoges . Limoges has approximately 150,000 inhabitants and is well known for its porcelain. There are many museums and lots of possibilities for a daytrip or a night on the town. At only 5 minutes from Domaine de Romefort you can find the medieval village of St. Léonard de Noblat . Here you'll find cozy pubs, good restaurants and well-stored supermarkets. The old village centre is beautiful and the famous church has a special architecture. It is a well-known tourist village and often markets and interesting events are organized here.
At the east side of Romefort there is a vast nature resort surrounding the Lac de Vassiviere. This lake measures 10 square kilometres and has many beaches and offers plenty of possibilities for water sports.
The forests in the vicinity are great for hiking and mountainbiking. It is a 15-minutes-drive from the nice Domaine to Lac de St. Hélène (see picture above). This is a nice recreational lake.The beach of this lake has a lifeguard and is suitable for all kinds of activities.
Next to the domaine the river La Vienne flows. In 2000 this river was equipped for canoes. There are slides next to the dams for canoes, so that you can canoe for hours on end. Alongside the river there are many watermills that are still in use.
In autumn plenty different types of mushrooms can be found in the woods that lie next to our Domaine. Many of them are edible. We will be glad to help you determine which ones are.
The hills are very suitable for biking. You can choose to go by mountain bike through the forests or with a racing bike over the small roads.
You can reach us by car, plane or train. There are many budget flights from Great Britain to Limoges and Limoges is also a TGV station. You'll travel from Limoges to the station of St. Léonard de Noblat within half an hour. If you wish, we can pick you up at the train station.
